Okay, so I've got a pretty decent rig going. 2x12 celestian Vintage 30's - 100w tube power amp and boutique pre. Fulltone OCD for OD. Semi-hollow Ibanez for a guitar. Here's what I'm lacking. How do I dial in the lows? I can get the highs (mostly the unwound strings) to really cut through the sound and be really sharp, but as soon as I get to the D string it gets WAY rounded edges. I want the lows to almost be "sharper" than the highs. (Ala Derek Trucks, Jeff Beck, Jimi Herring...etc..)

Any advice?
Thanks!

Well I know that Jeff Beck has the bridge tone knob on his strats all set to zero. Give that a try?

I'm going with different guitar, semi hollows don't have a defined, tight low end

Beck used Strats, not semi hollows.

Okay, I have a strat also but have the same problem. Also, Derek Trucks uses an SG with hummers.

jeff uses a marshall for the bottom end of his setup. what kind of pickups are in your strat? your cab may not have the low end response that you want to begin with. also what are your tone settings? as for trucks sound he uses a solid body mahogany guitar which has more low end to it to begin with.

strats usually don't have a tone control for the bridge pickup.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
